Ticket To Work
On Feb. 15, the House of Representatives approved a bill to restore Medicaid coverage to approximately 4,000 disabled workers whose health care coverage was eliminated by Gov. Matt Blunt and Republican lawmakers in 2005. The bill partially revives the Ticket to Work program, which allowed disabled workers with modest incomes to continue to qualify for state-funded health care. After the program was eliminated, many affected workers had to chose between keeping their jobs and keeping their health care benefits.
